Col Yorke Cavalry Hat Ready to ship – Our version of the classic cavalry hat from the horse westerns of the 40s and 50s.
The Cavalry trooper was immortalized in the John Ford Cavalry Trilogy. This is the same hat that you can see in almost every scene from those three great movies. She Wore a Yellow Ribbon; Fort Apache, and Rio Grande.
You can see versions of our Col. Yorke Old West Cavalry Hat styling in most of the westerns that featured cavalry troopers.
The crown has the unique “diamond” design, and the brim has been curled up.
1969 was an interesting year for the western movie. It has become some what of a benchmark because of the contrasting films True Grit and the Wild Bunch. True Grit was one of the last western spectacles made by the Marion Morrison generation. Compare that to the Wild Bunch, Sam Peckinpah’s ultra violent tribute to the Mexican Revolution.
Before Peckinpah directed large Hollywood blockbusters, he cut his teeth on TV Westerns in the 1950s and 60s. He directed many memorable episodes of Wanted Dead or Alive, Gunsmoke, The Rifleman, Have Gun Will Travel, Zane Grey Theater and lots of others.
Peckinpah’s The Wild Bunch was one of the first movies with blood splatters and other graphic violence. And it singled a change to more gritty and realistic representations of violence in the movies.
